Whisky Reviews for Glen Grant 1995 vW

  1. rottendon scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Not that your nose was bad, but that it knocked you off your socks in your mouth was not to be expected. Great malt that you can deal with for a while.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    A very typical Glen Grant, I think. Sparkling clean, fruity, fits.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Yellow, ripe fruits and old bottle flavor are immediately present, dry, no sweetness can be perceived. Pears become clear, also some grass, a slight note of fruit that gains strength together with the grass. A little lime also comes up, the OBF goes again, the malt still remains dry. After standing for a long time, there is considerably more fruit and a little sweat. It is also not quite as dry anymore. I can make out a touch of garlic. Hand warmth finally brings sweetness to light with a strong note of caramel, the pears are now compote.
    • Taste
      89 89
      It is all the sweeter in the mouth. A mixture of honey and liquid caramel, with a touch of pear and liquorice, and not too short. The start comes with an immense time delay, if you soon no longer expect it, but quite voluminous. On the second day it's milk chocolate instead of caramel, classic pear Helene.
    • Finish
      86 86
      In the short to medium-length finish, it dries off immensely and becomes grassy, with this pear-like impression lasting until the end.

  2. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A decent matured and well priced Glen Grant. Not a star, not a duffer. Decent whisky!
    Ever had a bad Glen Grant?
    • Nose

      Quite classic matured bourbonesk Glen Grant. A little bit on the sour side. Overall: sweet, vanilla, fresh cut grass, little apricot, sour orange in the background.
    • Taste
      87 87
      A good arrival of sweet and sour notes. Some cream, hint of white grapes, and a nice mellow taste
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long length. Good classic and matured finish, voluminous ice-cream, fudge and a little sour note. Fades away a little dry, but nothing to worry about.

  3. HeadofHog scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    Very nice round whisky. Daily dram for sure. Finish is a bit sweet, but not too

  4. Vis2020 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Very tipical Glen Grant profile
